The globally popular performance car manufacturer McLaren has revealed its latest convertible, the 720S Spider. The car gets a Monocage II chassis that does not need additional structural re-enforcement. The convertible shares mechanical and interior as the Coupe version. The carbon-fibre roof can be raised and lowered in just 11 seconds, which is coincidentally six seconds faster than the 650S Spider. The roof can be opened and shut in speeds of up to 50kmph.
McLaren 720S Spider is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that generates 715bhp of power and 770Nm of torque. The convertible is reportedly 49kgs heavier than the Coupe version, however, the vehicle continues to sprint from 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds. For freshness, the convertible gets new 10-spoke wheels and two additional colour options. The glazed panel can be switched between being transparent and opaque at just a touch of a button.
